I am in a quandry. I need to find out what kind of doctor I need to see because of a problem that has been getting worse but have no clue where to start since no PCP will see me while I am pregnant in my area and all the OB doctors do is give me a blank stare.
I have always had problems with milk products, but could get away with them if I had enough lactaid or used lactose free ones in moderation. Translation- I could have a single serving once or twice a week.
Now I cannot even have 1/4 cup of lactose free milk on my cereal- with most of the milk dumped down the drain once the cereal was eaten- without severe problems. I am talking about spending a whole day with intestinal cramping and running back and forth to the bathroom.
I am pretty sure this is not a simple GI problem though the end result of exposure to milk products is a GI disturbance. I just don't know what kind of doctor I need to look for to begin figuring this puzzle out. I mean, I cannot have ANY milk product in even minute quantities without suffering no matter the accomodations. I had been told it was just lactose intolerance but this is happening with lactose free products.
